Foot PSG - PSG: Lionel Messi will stay until 2025 for 40 million per year!

PSG is already preparing its future internally. Among the players that the capital club wants to extend: Leo Messi. And for this, Qatar is ready to spend a lot of money.

In Paris, the winter should be rather calm on the transfer market. PSG does not want to splurge and rely on its current workforce, except in the event of departures. Because the club of the capital wants above all to concentrate on its players to extend. This is already the case for Marco Verratti, recently extended until 2026. But two other important players are also in negotiations with PSG to renew their lease: Marquinhos and Lionel Messi. And according to the specialized press, the two files are on the right track. Unless there is a twist, the seven-time Ballon d’Or and reigning world champion will continue to play in the jersey of Paris Saint-Germain in the coming months, he who sees his contract end next June.

Leo Messi and Paris, here we go again

According to information from the Gazzetta dello Sport, Leo Messi will extend to PSG for two more seasons. An extension with a salary of 40 million euros. Slightly lower emoluments than what the Pulga have received since their arrival in Paris in 2021, but which are at an exceptional level, especially on a two-year contract. Despite a complicated start, Lionel Messi is enjoying this season in the jersey of the capital club with already 12 goals scored and 14 assists delivered in 19 games played in all competitions.

Its performance but also its commercial strength are elements to be taken into account for a PSG which wants to mark the occasion in all areas. Because since he signed in Paris, Lionel Messi has boosted the presence of the capital club on social networks and has boosted like no other footballer before sales in official stores. But sportingly, in this second part of the season, the Pulga will have a crucial role to play with Paris, which can also benefit from XXL confidence after its coronation at the World Cup with the Argentine selection. But a question still arises.

What about the future summer transfer window of PSG in attack. Because if Kylian Mbappé does not seem to have a good exit in 2023, even if we must not swear anything with the French star of Paris Saint-Germain, it is quite different for Neymar. Even if he is very close to Lionel Messi, the number 10 of the Seleçao and the champions of France probably understood that Qatar no longer really counted on him. Last summer, Neymar exercised the option for an additional year in Paris, which prompted Nasser Al-Khelaifi to publicly let ney that he had to seriously shake off the fleas this season and not hang around too much in the evening and at night. Likewise, rumors continue to swirl about Mbappé’s desire to see Neymar leave. For Lionel Messi, all this is not really a concern, the Pulga being well on its way to continuing its journey in the jersey of PSG. Very clever whoever would have guessed it last summer after a disastrous first season of the sevenfold Ballon d’Or in Paris.
